Into the Light: The Art of Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald$12

Into the Light is the first exhaustive survey of the influential Manitoba modernist, and Group of Seven member, in 40 years.

Beloved for his sensitive and serene depictions of Manitoba, Winnipeg artist Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald (1890–1956) was the last member to join the Group of Seven in 1932. Compared to the more outspoken members of the Group, FitzGerald’s voice was a quieter one, his legacy including both his stewardship of the Winnipeg School of Art (1929-1947) and the development of the WAG. He had his first show at the Gallery in 1921 and went on to become one of Canada’s best known early modernist painters.

FitzGerald’s life-long practice of making drawings, prints, and paintings deserves a closer look as we evolve our understanding of the trajectories of Canadian art. Like Canadian artists David Milne and Jack Chambers, FitzGerald’s deeply contemplative art renders the everyday miraculous, at times suggesting portals to the infinite. This exhibition will gather more than 200 works and is presented in partnership with the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
